Sultry yet favourable weather, satisfying food and good mood, music-soaked culture, colourful carnivals, coral-fringed islands and their long stretches of powdery beaches, majestic Amazon River…its wander-list can go on and on; for Brazil is not just a destination, it’s a sensory overload! This country is the largest in South America and the fifth-largest in the world even though highly underrated. For curious travellers, Brazil is both a tropical paradise and a sensational cultural destination with attractions for all tastes, from delightful beach holidays and otherworldly nature explorations to rhythm-filled metropolises and the pulsating beats of Rio's Carnival.
This captivating country is way too massive to be described in a single sentence or a short paragraph and if you bring its tourism under the spotlight, it indeed is a major industry for Brazil and once you are here, it is hard not to say, “I want to come here again”. There is unusual energy and a love for life that runs through every aspect of Brazilian culture, whether it’s their Samba dancing, drumming in Carnival, indigenous and Portuguese influences; all of these and more come together to create such ambiance that you’ll want to stay in forever. While most of the travellers prefer visiting the much-famed São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro that offer a peek into the intricate heritage and urban mosaic too hard to ignore, on the other hand, the wilderness of the Amazon rainforest and landmarks like Ignazau Falls gives access to the natural spectacles of Brazil. Then there’s this infinite cultural energy of Alagoas, Pernambuco and Bahia, the strolls at the buzzing city of Copacabana, an exciting visit to UNESCO listed sites of Recife, the archaic looks of Salvador, the popular football centres, plenty of subtropical forests, historic neighbourhoods and unique attractions that make Brazil an amazing destination to explore. And there’s no point not mentioning that Brazil adores music. Whether you are up to dancing with Cariocas at Rio's atmospheric samba clubs or following powerful drumbeats through the streets of Salvador, there’s this endless variety of regional sights and sounds that will surely give you itching for a true Brazilian escapade.

Salvador is Brazil’s third-largest city and the capital of the Bahia state. While it's one foot is still inside the traces of the old city’s history with art galleries, churches and plazas, another is in the new thriving district where the modern-day developments of shopping megaplexes, entertainment venues and residential neighbourhoods add to the excitement.
During the days, you can explore the streets that are so charming that you feel like stepping back in time, especially in the historic centre Pelourinho. It is full of colourful, pastel colonial buildings and historic squares and has a wonderful atmosphere characterised by its welcoming locals.
